National Latino Cancer Summit – Booking Link

The impact of cancer on a heterogeneous Latino community is still a puzzle. Not only is the Latino population under-researched, but the effect that the differences in lifestyle, environment and genetic variation among Latinos have on cancer incidence/risk and prognosis are mostly unknown. More than 1 in 5 Latino deaths is caused by cancer, the number one cause of mortality in a population of 57 million people in this country. At least a third are continually challenged by income, language and cultural barriers.

 Addressing Latino health disparities has to involve an integrative framework that includes all relevant factors or there will be no sustainable change:
  • The individual (biological and behavioral),
  • The family and community,
  • The institutional and structural (unequal access to education and quality health care)

What do we have to do to bring the growing knowledge on cancer biology, risk factors, prevention and treatments at the individual and population levels into the real world? The Summit and its network of researchers, providers, community agencies and outreach workers will explore and share these issues in an effort to address needs and gaps across the cancer continuum.
